Review for Pet Peace of Mind, Salem, OR, USA
One of the most amazing relationships in life is that between pets and their owners. I get to see it every day. In addition to interactions with my own pets, as part of my career in the veterinaryfield I am witness to the enormous importance of the bond between pets and humans. This bond has been scientifically shown to keep humans healthy by lowering blood pressure and enhancing immune system function by reducing stress in our lives. I know from personal experience that cuddling my purring kitty or playing with my silly dog helps me when life sometimes seems overwhelming. I can't even imagine the concerns I would have about their care if I were incapacitated in some way. This is where Pet Peace Of Mind come in and helps those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and are in hospice care. They make sure the pet stays with the patient, is cared for during their illness and then is placed in a loving home once that person passes away. What a noble cause.
